All hardware is completely stock. Not factory OC'd, nor manually OC'd.
The following problem occurs.
When I initially built the rig (~4 days ago) the computer would restart without warning, no BSOD no nothing after about 20 minutes of gaming in Crysis. At the time I was using an old silverstone PSU which apparently was not up to the task. I naturally assumed this was the problem. So I purchased the Corsair HX650 which should be more than enough to power a
single GTX 580 (correct?). Everything looked fine, I could play Crysis fine (longer than 20minutes). Then I tested the computer under Prime95. The computer would restart everytime within 2 minutes of starting the test -blend.
I _believe_ an energy saving feature of my motherboard was turned on, (the EPU - very confusing as the manual has the on/off switch backwards) so I deactivated that and everything seemed to be ok again. Could run Prime95 for 30+ mins without restart (blend) and so far 3 hours large FFT so I believed that this solved the problem.
Furmark tests went flawlessly for 40mins.
However once again, after an hour or so of gaming my computer restarted.
I should mention all temperatures are completely fine, CPU barely breaks 50C during torture testing with Prime95, and GPU 70C during ~40min Furmark.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Built this rig after much long and hard work, and to have such a problem is a real kick in the teeth
- Uninstall driver vga from system it will make boot system.
- unplug power ac from psu
- Revome your 580 from pc
- and Try test use vga onbord first, of course install again driver vga onboard from cd stock .
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
I believe these coincide with my resets.
Does anyone know what these mean?
EDIT: Apparently these errors are often caused by conflicting audio drivers. Sure enough I have nVidia HD audio and RealTEK onboard audio drivers both active. I have since deactivated the nVidia HD Audio drivers. Praying this solves it. Seems weird that a Prime95 test would induce an error produced by an audio driver conflict, though.
